Holly Thomas

Holly Thomas is a Gisborne-based painter whose work showcases a love for colour and mark making.

Her paintings are spontaneous free-form compositions and reveal an intuitive and thoughtful process which creates atmospheric, gestural and bold pieces. They often involve elements of drawing and the use of mixed materials layered amongst paint.

Holly’s unique style has been described as expressionist, diverse and contemporary with a fresh and evolving point of view. She has studied painting and fine art through Nelson Polytech, UCOL, and The Learning Connexion. She regularly exhibits throughout New Zealand and undertakes private commissions.
